  • Fran & Family,
    Very sorry for the loss of a phenomenal woman. I enjoyed my chats with Marty when she visited BGSU. In one conversation she mentioned that she was in labor and delivery at St. Rita’s/ Lima for “many of the Daley children and that may have included me! Cherish the memories.

  • Dear Fran and Family,
    We send our sincere sympathy to you. Marty was my roommate at St Rita’s Nursing School and remained a friend to the Altenberger family. She was so generous to us. We still have and enjoy the many gifts of her creative talents. The gift we cherish above all was her caring spirit.
    With a sad heart.

  • Fran, what a lady! I learned to know Marty at the BGSU events. We discussed every topic possible and I always walked away and even later redialed our conversations. She approached life with an exceptional strength, knowing what could be tackled and what needed to remain untouched. Loved that insight and the confidence with which she expressed it! It gave me strength and a model for meeting challenges. Thank you Fran for the support you showed as the two of you walked through what seemed a long and difficult pathway. The two of you will always be a “connect” in my mind.

  • Fran,
    We are so very sorry for the passing of Marty. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. May she Rest In Peace.

  • Fran & Family:
    Our family was so sadden at the news of Marty’s passing. You< Marty and your family were a very special part of the Miller family during your time in Delphos, as you were to so many others. I know our parents, especially "Mom" were so fond of you and Marty and we Miller kids have a lot of great memories of our days as St. John's and the impact you both had on us. I wish Linda and I could have made it to Marty's viewing today and the funeral mass on Saturday, but family commitments will prevent us from making the trip to Marion. Please know that you, the boys and your entire family will be in our thoughts and prayers this weekend and the months to come. Hopefully we'll be able to catch up with you the next time you're in Delphos or our travels through Marion in the near future. God Bless you all!

  • Dear Fran and family,you are in my thoughts’ and prayers’,Marty was a special lady, may she RIP
